    Colors Get Wonky in Slow Ring 16288

    Just after upgrading to the slow ring Build 16288 late last week, my desktop color scheme developed a horrible shade of yellow around lots of UI elements, including Button stuff, Hilight, Highlight Text, and HotTracking color (all from HKCU\Control Panel\Colors). Drove me bonkers until I found a way to restore defaults at In case anybody else runs into this, I blogged about the symptoms and the fix in my Windows Enterprise Desktop blog this morning: Wonky Win10 Colors Require Registry Edits - Windows Enterprise Desktop.

    PS: this was the predominating shade of yellow that pervaded my desktop and UI elements:

    Reminded me rather too much of diaper changing duty when the kiddos were still using them. Sigh.

    Hah! Logged into my system again this morning to discover the same awful colors established AGAIN. Checking the relevant registry keys, I found no changes from the default. Then I remembered seeing here the discussion that slow ring IP is having difficulties with the Nvidia device drivers. Sure enough, the new version pushed out Wednesday (9/20) immediately fixed things up as soon as it was installed. Go figure...
    The default registry key settings files are still useful, though, and now I've got them where I can find them easily and quickly, should I ever need them again.

I have read on this site about an update available on the slow ring to build 14366 but I am not recieving it, should I be worried? When I run the "check for updates" it always tells me Im up to date. I tried restarting the update service, gave the...
Nevermind. Got my answer. Hi all. If Build 10130 is pushed to the slow ring, is it likely that MS will upload an official ISO at the Insider website? I see the previous build (10074) at the site -- I'm assuming that a build is worthy of...
I haven't been on my Windows 10 Build 10074 install for a few days now and when I check for new builds it doesn't show anything available. Windows Update is set for the slow ring and I was just wondering if all the newer builds are only available...
